Halsted Street – Chicago, IL 60614Date: Thursday – November 9th, 2017Time: Doors 8pm / Show 9pmTickets: $15adv / $20dos (Purchase tickets here) Israeli livetronica act G-Nome Project—composed of keyboardist Eyal Salomon, guitarist Shlomo Langer, bassist Zechariah Reich, and drummer Chemy Soibelman—has taken their local scene by storm, selling out venues in their hometown, all the way to Tel Aviv with their brand of electro-funk. However, the G-Nome Project does not always get the chance to make it stateside, so when they do, it’s always a treat. This fall, the group is embarking on a tour across the United States, with thirteen dates currently laid out. During this upcoming fall tour, the group will its triumphant return to Chicago, with a special performance at the Tonic Room on Thursday, November 9th. (Purchase tickets here).In an interview with L4LM earlier this year, Salomon describes the burgeoning Israeli music scene and the inherently American roots of jam music: “The Israeli music scene has actually been on an upswing. The indie scene has produced some great bands recently. Trance is huge here. So is Jazz and Pop. Here in Jerusalem, the city sponsors multiple huge pop-up street concerts each month. But that is usually all very mainstream music. I think there’s something inherently American about the jam scene. It’s not only lacking in Israel; it’s pretty much lacking everywhere in the world outside of America (and Canada). This was one of the things that inspired us to create G-Nome.” You can take a listen to the full audio of G-Nome Project’s performance at Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont, on September 1st, 2015, to get a taste of the magic that’ll be going down in Chicago early next month. Tickets for G-Nome Project’s show at Tonic Room on Thursday, Nov. 7th are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.
Groundwater decreasingThe normal recharge season for groundwater is over. Sogroundwater levels are expected to keep dropping through summerinto fall.The state’s major reservoirs are in good shape. Levels will beginto drop, though, without adequate rainfall soon.Georgia is now under the normal odd-even outdoor water useschedule. Odd-numbered addresses may water only on Tuesdays,Thursdays and Sundays. Even-numbered and unnumbered addresses maywater only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are nohour limits. The normal odd-even schedule is used whenever the state isn’texperiencing a drought. While conditions are abnormally dry,Georgia is not in a drought. However, proper water use duringabnormally dry times can delay or even prevent the need for morestringent water use restrictions later.Local governments and water providers are authorized to implementmore stringent outdoor water use schedules within theirjurisdictions.Comprehensive updated information may be found at www.georgiadrought.org.

Low soil moistureSoil moisture is lowest in the Chattahoochee and Savannah RiverValleys and along the fall line. Only extreme southeast Georgiahas near normal soil moisture for April.U.S. Geological Survey stream gauges are showing low flows acrossthe entire state. Many streams are between the 10th and 25thpercentile for the date. This means that at the 10th percentile,we expect thestream flow to be greaterthan the current value 90 years out of 100 for this date.At the 25th percentile, we expect the stream flow to be greater75 years out of 100.Based on USGS data, groundwater levels were showing good rechargein November and December 2005. However, with abnormal drynessduring February through mid-April, these levels are beginning todrop. By David Emory StooksburyUniversity of Georgia Athens, Ga. — The past six months have been abnormally dryacross the entire state of Georgia.Rainfall during the cool season, October through March, is neededto recharge soil moisture, groundwater, and reservoirs. Becauseof the dry cool season, the soil moisture hasn’t been adequatelyrecharged. As a result, the state has abnormally dry soils andlow stream flows for April.
